As others have already mentioned, using the full oVirt  with engine in
a single host scenario can work, but is not currently actively
maintained or tested.

There are other options originating from the oVirt community however.

One notable option is to use the Cockpit-oVirt plugin [1] which can
use VDSM to manage VMs on a single host.

Another option is to use the Kimchi project [2] for which discussion
for making it an oVirt project had taken part in the past [3]. It
seems that also some work for inclusion in oVirt node was also planned
at some point [4].
